The gods has said by Akinwale Peace

Akinwale Peace

The gods has said.

I once know an alien Prince in his fatherland
A curse to the future-back in the fatherland:
Back since was told; at the shrine, "let his blood be damned"
But fate and destiny be damned, a yellin' alarm.

A Prince killed not but sent to ' diff' land to nurture-
Exiled Prince came back to his land; a pleased torture:
Sun sets at moon; his mother; he met a stranger,
A legal alien; oh destined fate, be thou damn!

A curse to the future; a thirst for the future;
The gods said, but the sun still stood with moon's flavor-
He drank his father's blood and wet his mother's bed,
Oh great! A glad catastrophe; the gods has said.

Stars shine at noon; a foe to moon beneath haven
Its your fate, your destined dark noon; bright sun at moon-
Oh great! A glad catastrophe; the gods has said,
The bright sun burns brightly at moon; the gods has said.

The father prostrated to his son; what a shame;
The son killed his father- unknown to him; a pain,
The bright sun burns brightly at moon; the gods has said,
Oh great! A glad catastrophe; the gods has said.

Read the story. TEARS IN MY EYES



                     TEARS IN MY EYES     The anxiety for sex prompted the award winning and young Nigerian poet (Ololade Akinlabi Ige) to sharpen the keen mouth of his pen to write the novella: TEARS IN MY EYES. This is a book for everyone to read.
The pains and agony the main character in the novella went through were meant to awake the conscience of the wicked being. 

     Ariyo is a beautiful lady. Eyes cannot deny that. She is a product of rape but she leaves behind her worries knowing fully well that the world is good for no one. But she feels it is very stupid if she eventually falls victim of what led her to life. She tries to always avoid intimate relationship with boys because she knows quite well that boys often come with different missions in which most of the time their common mission is sex, sex and sex.
     But we are all human being, this heart needs a companion. So it is for Ariyo who uncons…



Once upon a time, a woman has a big store for her chickens. The chickens are so big that they give big and good eggs everytime they release eggs. The woman fed them so much that they were weighty even after releasing eggs.
One day, a customer brought some local hens to her, she said
"Try them, they are also good hens. They give big eggs as well. You'll enjoy keeping and feeding them."

The woman collected them and added them with his chickens. The chickens and the local hens stayed together in a place.
One day, the woman gave them the normal food they eat, as the chickens pecked their food moderately, the local hens scattered it with their legs as they peck, they scattered it around and peck, they did that till they liter the whole place.
Mother hen looked at the chickens,
"We're the same now, we eat the same food. We will yield the same eggs, we will be on the postal too."
The chickens flap their feathers feebly and rested th…

BOOK: SANE SANDS OF DUSTY DAWNin honour of Late Pa Adeniran Adefemi.
Today, songs by Banners welcomed me, and just then, I was brought to the knowledge of this post which I'd forgotten.
It is sad, it is disheartening yet overtime, it has come to my psychological reasoning that Joseph, best known as Prince Joe is recovering from this saddening occurrence and I feel he has been encouraged. He needs cheerful people around him, not people that will bring such memories...
     However, it is pertinent to note that when you have people around you, know that you don't have dirty clothes. And if you don't have people, know that you are not alone, you only need to move closer to those you think hate you. Trust me, they can follow you into the storm, stand and fall with you, you can count on them...friends can, only if you move closer to them.
     Life and death are two parallel lines, you either die or live. We do not want to die but we deserve death, because since we are born, what d…
